Evening's Jim Dever shares his signature dish with us!

Jim has worked with many great chefs over the years, but none can make his specialty tuna and quinoa dish! #newdaynw

You might know Jim Dever as one of the hosts of KING 5's Evening, but did you know he cooks too? Well, sort of.

He swears we'll love it, but if you don't like tuna (like producer Suzie!) it might not be for you.

He joined New Day NW to show us how to make it!
